    Happy Canada Day, eh!

    A very warm Happy Canada Day everyone, et Joyeux Fête du Canada

    Canada Day is observed tomorrow, on July 1. Canada Day celebrates the creation of the Canadian nation in 1867. Canada and the USA share the longest undefended border in the world. We have many members on the forum from Canada and this forum is hosted and administered by Canadians.


    I hope many of you get to visit and enjoy what Canada has to offer.

    A very Happy Canada Day!

    Gary Garritan



    The Canadian National Anthem:
    O Canada - downloadable mp3

    English:


    O Canada!
    Our home and native land!
    True patriot love in all thy sons command.
    With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
    The True North strong and free!
    From far and wide, O Canada,
    We stand on guard for thee.
    God keep our land glorious and free!
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    Français:


    Ô Canada!
    Terre de nos aïeux,
    Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
    Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
    Il sait porter la croix!
    Ton histoire est une épopée
    Des plus brillants exploits.
    Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
    Protégera nos foyers et nos droits,
    Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

    Well, you know how they chose our country's name, eh?

    they tossed a bunch of Scrabble pieces into a bag and pulled em out, one at a time:
    "it's a C, eh"
    "it's an N, eh"
    "it's a D, eh"

    It's an old joke but is funny, eh?

    Wow. I love Canada. My mom used to live there. In 7th grade I did a project on what I would do if I owned Canada.


    Canada Day, eh? That's amazing. We should have some contest to see who can arrange the national anthem the best or something. I Canada.

    My wife and I are planning to send our second daughter (15 yo) to Quebec for a student exchange for three months. She is totally fascinated by Canada and is learning French. She also loves the cold.

    Mind you, as an Australian, she has no idea what cold means! She will get there in January if all goes to plan.
